The 52 Project: Jan. 20

UES_Sunrise^^ I realize that this photo makes it two sun-themed 52 Project photos in a row,
but this one was just too good to pass up. The other day as I was leaving our apartment
for work at 7:30 a.m., I noticed the sun rising, gloriously, over
the East River. (How could I not?!) There are very few times
in this wonderful city that you get to marvel at nature. Humanity? Sure.
Endurance? Sure. But nature? Not really unless you’re in a park.
At 7:30 in the morning, though, the city is just starting to come alive.
Don’t get me wrong — this city is alive at all times of the day, it’s just not quite
as alive at 7:30 in the morning as it is at other times. I have never in the
six years we’ve lived in this apartment seen the sun rising like that, perfectly
in line with our little stretch of street. All was quiet. The day was just beginning.
It was kind of nice.
